RTÉ’s Home of the Year returns to crown Ireland’s best house

Must read

The much-loved property series starts next Tuesday.

The Irish home of the year will again be crowned as the RTÉ property show returns next week with houses on show from across the country.

Home of the Year is set to feature re-imagined semi-detached homes, renovation projects, architectural homes, restored homes and new builds in Antrim, Clare, Cork, Derry, Dublin, Galway, Kildare, Louth, Mayo, Offaly, Waterford and Wicklow.

The hit show returns next Tuesday for a tenth series, with the first episode featuring an old-schoolhouse in Cork, an eco-minded self-build in Clare and a 1960s house in Dublin.

Judges Hugh Wallace, architect Amanda Bone and interior designer Sara Cosgrove will evaluate each home based on individuality, functionality and clever design, scoring each out of ten.

The home with the highest combined score each episode will go through to the final in April.

“Two hundred and ten delicious homes visited over a decade and my heart still flutters with excitement to walk through the hall door and get inspired,” said Mr Wallace.

“I believe a home is a reflection of the homeowner and a source of well-being, so it’s fascinating discovering what people enjoy and how they express and see themselves,” said Ms Bone.

The series begins on Tuesday, February 20 at 8.30pm on RTÉ One and RTÉ Player.
